International Day of Action to Cancel Zapotillo - November 10


Published October 10, 2010


US activists and Mexican nationals organized a protest at the Mexican consulate in San Francisco on November 10 to demand the cancellation of the Zapotillo Dam. Many of the protesters recently returned from Mexico and witnessed the illegal construction of the project.

Thousands of people are participate in demonstrations on November 10 as part of an International Day of Action to Cancel the Zapotillo Dam.

The Mexican government, in conjunction with the National and Jalisco State Water Commissions, has illegally started construction on the 105-meter El Zapotillo Dam. The dam, which is proposed to supply water to the industrial city of Leon, Guanajuato, continues without the appropriate environmental impact and land use permits and without the informed consent of the affected communities. The dam would be located on the Rio Verde, in the highlands of Mexico's Jalisco State.
